LAMP – Language Acquisition Through Motor Planning Workshop For Caregivers & Educators
February 10 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
This workshop is open to the community and is an excellent opportunity for caregivers and educators to learn strategies to communicate with non-speaking individuals. LAMP is an augmentative alternative communication (AAC) approach designed to give individuals who are nonverbal or have limited verbal abilities a method of independently expressing themselves through the use of a speech-generating device.
There are no cognitive prerequisites for implementing the LAMP approach. Intervention can begin at the cause-and-effect level and systematically build upon the stages of natural language development. This course covers implementation rationale and strategies with an introduction to the LAMP Words for Life language system.
The cost of the class is $139. A discounted rate of $69.50 is available for students and parents. Seating is limited.
Two 15-minute breaks and a one-hour lunch break will be provided. During the lunch break, participants have the option of eating in the Hamilton Medical Center cafeteria, bringing a lunch, or leaving the campus for lunch.
